Asemic Postcards 122 & 124


Dearest Veldie:

At same julienne skjorte,

I vend miles solnedgang;

In isle weeks reciterer,

we were swelling jig!


The two goal vi jig –

recite serape sleeper jig,

dow-jones bobs.


Shirt sunset before –

The ashcan bombs the user –

beware the table.


Sleep toad isolation,

our lighted phenomenon,

sammdie downs oiliness.

always yours,



Dear Cousin Kevin ~

In the same silken skjorte scone yesterday –

Our illuminated phenomenon

begins in front of a table,

a collection of many blue artifacts,

from books,

cut a collection of chapbooks

on our phenomenon.


Did the lake stop him out of the attention of a psychologist?



The banned node reverts

past a managing stem.

A conditioned paint smiles

above a shoulder.


Posters for Magazine concerts –

touched the heaviest aardvark dancers,

in sunset miles,

so-many ferocious

wane liinged-gangs.

always yours,


Case of The Long Gone Twin

Case of The Long Gone Twin

by Jacques Ohm Le Quig’Miresen.
Palindrome Picayune Press 2021.

One morning in a house on Quetzalcoatl Ave., in New Nord-Dew-Newt, Lemuria, Doctor Supernatant Theorem opens a gift from her Twin, Lady Foxegh Saprophytic, and Supernatant knows their lives will never be the same again.

Whilst trying to rebuild her life, Supernatant witnesses a crime that leads her to question a new relationship. She becomes obsessed with enigmatic stranger Thongor De Analogies. What is his connection to Foxegh, and why has he turned up now?

Supernatant’s behaviour becomes increasingly erratic as she struggles to unravel the truth, and determine the significance of a churning crucible left in the dead neighbour’s gazebo, all whilst battling to cope with exterminated adenoidectomy.

Every day, Supernatant gets closer to the truth, and finding her long gone twin! But the closer she gets to reuniting with Foxegh, the more thundering-malvoisie it seems. And that is to say nothing of the strange midnight occurrence of the dog in  Caillou Lane.

the significance of a churning crucible

What can be said about Le Quig’Miresen’s third novel that hasn’t been said before?

mourning in a house full of static  claumey,

steeple shadows cling to clustering souls.

The nondescript narrator takes the reader through the tangled events that beguile Supernatant Theorem with dread, hope, pristine corners, and chocolate truffles in the night. Thongor De Analogies fights off pessimism and melancholy after he finally returns to Londinium, thinking he has lost the one and only woman he ever truly loved. But which of the twins was his heart’s desire, and which was the one who would drive him to madness? All the clues are there, for those seeking an answer.

Needless to say,

sand, salt, and pebbles

lurk in a  sad heart broken –

where is the laughter?

Asemic Maps 33 & 34

The translation of asemic maps – a linguistic cacophony of coordinates and confused cartographic morphemes emptying into a confluence of depth curve onomastic elevation – metaphors with no syntagms.

calipers ready-

compass points ~ silent phonemes,

contour intervals.


Asemic Haiku 1 & 2


I contemplated how to approach the creation of asemic haiku. A cursory search online found a fellow blogger,

The whole process forces you to consider what the haiku structure entails (Sixty-five (Conflicting) Rules of Haiku” by Jane Reichhold). In English, Haiku structure is  built on syllables, in an approximation of Japanese ( the lines are made up of 5, 7, and 5 kana. One Japanese kana -usually a hiragana or katakana – is one Japanese syllable, but does not always equal one English syllable).

With asemic calligraphy, syllables become meaningless. In the Red Asemic Haiku, I simply went with a 3 line structure , and the size of the symbols/glyphs resulted in a 3/5/3 sequence.

In the second attempt, I followed the 5/7/5 sequence. The middle line works if you treat the first 3 symbols as 1 asemic syllable – if you are really concerned with structure.
